It's critical for CRE Investments

Investing in CRE takes more than due diligence - that’s why a capital management company must have a team of professionals spread over multiple disciplines. Successful managers have a team with first-hand experience on each of the disciplines of the commercial real estate market they invest in.

Small and medium private funds focus on small-deal sizes, thus more likely to find, move fast and capitalize local opportunities. These deals are not as obvious or desirable to large institutional firms. Valuations can be more subjective because they are based on local comps, market conditions and performed by local real estate investors with different criteria and levels of expertise.

Proximity to an investment is key in these types of investments. Through the last recession, many of the CRE investments that experienced trouble suffered because out-of-town investors lacked a realistic understanding of the local markets in which they invested and rarely visited them. Thus, when times became tough, those investors didn’t know where to begin addressing those challenges, including their lenders which didn’t know how to apply scenarios that work out.

Investing in some distant markets where “flying-to” may not be an option for everyone due to the time involved with commercial-flights might create investment limitations. Unless the investors access these markets throughout local RE investors and /or investing alongside with regionally-focused developers and lenders, the investor is starting out with a disadvantage.

Knowing the geographical area the manager invests in is key and developing relationships is essential to successfully navigate the CRE industry.
